One of our young parent practitioners recently arranged for a young mum to take part in 'New Shoots' at Vauxhall City Farm - it's a brilliant practical, outdoors based programme to develop employability skills.
This is a great example of how our outstanding outreach team works one to one with young parents to provide tailored support, working with a vast network of local organisations so we're not 'reinventing the wheel'.
New Shoots is for unemployed people aged 16 - 25 and aims to
- Build the confidence, self esteem and motivation to succeed
- Gain valuable practical experience, qualifications and knowledge
- Overcome barriers to achieve positive steps
- Meet new people
